Roberta did a very nice job - and while not as strong and engaging as Vanessa in Amsterdam, she was good and knew her stuff. The tour itself (the material) was not the best as our walk along the way could have included more history and I would actually blame the city of Berlin for the lack of material and items to review. View from Tower was ok, not sure it was worth the 100 euros plus the time away from the tour. We have taken context tours in Paris, Rome, Berlin and Amsterdam and this was the weakest material to work with - would not recommend this to first-time visitors to Berlin at this price tag.
Great tour. Aaron was a great guide. He really connected with our kids and made the morning both informative and fun.
The tour was poorly designed and poorly executed. It focused far too much on graffiti on a small section of the wall and not enough on the broader picture, the division of the city and the context (literally) of what was happening. It excluded major sights such as Checkpoint Charlie and its museum - a far better place for kids to understand what divided Berlin was like. Our guide, while a very nice person, is completely inappropriate as a guide for this tour. How can you have someone who has only lived in Berlin for 8 years do this tour when so many Germans who lived through the experience are still available? They simply didn’t know enough. It seems that Context has grown too fast and can not maintain the high quality standards it established in the past. Better to not accept the booking than to disappoint so much. We’ve taken many of your tours and recommended Context to over a dozen friends. Based on our two tours of Berlin, not sure about doing that in the future.
